Experiments on a cavitating orifice have been performed in water. The main goal was to characterize and compare three different orifice geometries. Mass flow rates and steady pressure measurements have been used to describe the hydraulic curve of the orifice. High-speed imaging has been used to characterize the cavitation evolution. Finally, special attention has been devoted to the void fraction measurements with a three pressure probes technique.
